What editors are saying

This is an excellent batch of writes...Thanks for sending some work our way.

What editors are saying

I adored all of your pieces, but I was completely taken with 'And The Beat Goes On'. Your hypnotic rhythm and evocative language captivated me and I'm thrilled to have it in our first issue of littledeath. (Lucky me that the other magazines didn't snap it up first, hm?)


What editors are saying

Thank you for being part of 50 Haikus Issue #14. We love your poetry!

--50 Haikus - Prolific Press, Inc.

What editors are saying

I really like the two poems and the story, which is a refreshing kitchen sink realism I don’t often encounter these days. They are all three delicious and thematically holistic.

What editors are saying

Just letting you know I'll be publishing "Sucking the Marrow", very cutting piece of work.

--Writ in Dust

What editors are saying

Love your poetry, it's a shame those others were taken as we really liked them all. We would love to publish "Smooth Whiskey" and "Killers."
